Monday is mine and my fiance's 3 year anniversary (do most people even celebrate or acknowledge anniversaries if they are not married)! The past three years have been a mixture of ups and downs...tremendous highs and horrible lows...but as I look back on our journey I realize that I wouldn't trade any of it for all the money in the world. Since I'm doing a little reminiscing I thought that I would share with you the story of how we came to be!

In high school (Freshman year to be exact) I met my future husband Jamie. We dated, if you wanna call talking on the phone for hours, holding hands during a movie, and meeting up at the Skating rink dating, for a couple of months in 9th grade. I'm not sure how or why but I always knew that he would be "the one".

High school came and went and we lost touch. Jamie ended up married to a former friend of mine and I ended up married to a Bible thumping, Christian 10 years my senior. Our paths occasionally crossed and I would be a liar if I said that I didn't wonder "what if?" in those moments. Three years ago I was on and noticed that he had an account as well so I sent him a message asking how he was...that was the beginning of the end of my marriage and the start of something completely unexpected and wonderful! I left my husband soon after that and Jamie and I started dating, he eventually moved in with me and my two girls and a little over a year later we welcomed our first child into our home.

3 years and 2 babies later we're still going strong. I would be a liar if I said we didn't have our moments or that their weren't times when I want to strangle him but he means the world to me! I know every morning when I wake up that he is "the one" and that even though the way we came to be was a little controversial and maybe not the best way to go about it was right!

I love you baby for now until forever, more than the sky, and with every ounce of my heart! Happy Anniversary!
